The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into The Clorox Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

The Clorox Company stock dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 57.42% of net profits

Recently The Clorox Company has paid out, on average, around 57.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Clorox Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Clorox Company's case, that would currently equate to about $4.49 per share.

The Clorox Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The Clorox Company's most recent dividend payout was on 13 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 27 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Clorox Company stocks ever split?

The Clorox Company stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 August 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Clorox Company stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for The Clorox Company stocks which in turn could have impacted The Clorox Company's stock price.

The Clorox Company stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Clorox Company's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $161.74 up to $228.3236. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
